Engineering/German Dual Degree

Why this degree?

Auburn University’s dual degree program allows students to pursue a bachelor’s degree in German and a bachelor’s degree in engineering, concurrently. Graduates receive two separate diplomas in two distinct fields of study.

The dual degree program in German and engineering allows students to earn two degrees in an accelerated period, making it more cost effective. The program allows students to learn from experts at Auburn and in Germany while gaining real-world experience, intercultural competence and advanced German language proficiency.

Students can earn a dual degree in one of the following engineering fields:

  • Computer Science
  • Software Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Industrial and Systems Engineering

You are eligible to apply if...

You meet the requirements to be admitted to Auburn University. Freshman and transfer applications can be found at http://www.auburn.edu/admissions/prospectivestudents.html.

To complete the program you must...

  • Complete the five-year program to acquire both degrees*
    • The program requires one year in Germany, including one semester of coursework and an extensive internship. Auburn University has partner institutions in Aalen, Offenburg, Karlsruhe and Würzburg-Schweinfurt.
    • Each non-summer semester features at least one German class to build and maintain German language proficiency.
  • Find degree requirements for your engineering program of choice at https://eng.auburn.edu/programs/#two.

*This is a five-year degree program; however, a shorter duration is possible. The length of study will depend on language and math placement in the first year as well as advanced credit earned through Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or dual enrollment. Some summer coursework may be necessary. Students will be closely advised in both fields of study during this program.
